Discusses the basic model of public management reform, using a simple matrix. The state’s roles are defined in terms of the relevant forms of ownership in contemporary capitalism. They are state ownership, public non-state ownership, corporative ownership, and private ownership. On the other hand, we have the exclusive activities of the state, the social and scientific services, and the production of goods and services for the markets. State property or organization applies only to the exclusive state activities; public non-state organizations are supposed to provide social and scientific services mostly financed by the state; corporative organizations, such as unions and association, will take care of corporative activities; and private organizations will perform the production of goods and services form the market. Within the state organization, we have the strategic core, in which policies and laws are defined, and agencies. Only in the strategic core, effectiveness is more important than efficiency, and public management must be combined with bureaucratic public administration.
